Good build in quality and wonderful to drive


The paint is rather fragile.

One seat had to be fixed better.

General Comments:

It is my first Alfa and the driving experience really good!

The engine has nice sound, and the performance of the 1.6 is quite good.

Comfort is acceptable, except on bad roads.

Build in quality so far is very good, I am really puzzled.

Driving position is excellent, and gear changes are smooth.

I would certainly recommend this model, far more exciting to drive than its German competitors.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
